This week brings two new books and three comics. Del Rey’s 40th Anniversary anthology From a Certain Point of View is out Tuesday, October 3. It features 40 short stories from 42 authors, all set during A New Hope. Also out Tuesday is William Shakespeare’s The Force Doth Awaken by Ian Doescher.
Over at StarWars.com, James talks to author Claudia Gray about Leia: Princess of Alderaan. They address the Organas, Amilyn Holdo, Easter eggs and more.
Just one comic this week: Coming Wednesday, September 27 is Mace Windu: Jedi of the Republic #2.
Del Rey and the approximately twenty billion (okay, 40-something) authors of From A Certain Point of View have begun to reveal the subjects of their stories. Several dropped last week – Star Wars Books has them collected on Facebook, or keep an eye on their Twitter for the up-to-the-minutes.
We’ve also learned about the audiobook casting, which includes Jon Hamm and Neil Patrick Harris as well as Star Wars vets Ashley Eckstein, Janina Gavankar, and Marc Thompson.
The book is out October 3.
